Back Pain Treatment in Chennai - Shri Bone & Joint Clinic

Overview of Back Pain

Back pain is incredibly common, affecting most people at some point. It can range from a dull ache to a sharp, debilitating pain. Causes vary muscle strain from overuse, poor posture, injury or age-related wear and tear on spinal discs.

Back pain is a prevalent and multifaceted medical condition characterized by discomfort, stiffness or soreness in the lower, middle or upper back region. It can be acute, lasting for a short duration or chronic, persisting for long periods. Causes of back pain vary and may include muscle strain, ligament sprain, herniated discs, spinal stenosis or underlying medical conditions like arthritis or osteoporosis.

Lifestyle factors such as poor posture, obesity and a lack of exercise can exacerbate the condition. Treatment often involves a combination of pain management techniques, physical therapy, exercise and lifestyle modifications.

In severe cases, surgery may be necessary. Proper ergonomics, regular exercise, weight management and avoiding prolonged sitting or heavy lifting can help prevent back pain. Prompt medical attention is crucial for accurate diagnosis and appropriate management of back pain to improve quality of life and prevent further complications.

Medical History

  • Your healthcare provider will ask about the onset, duration, and characteristics of your back pain.
  • Information about any past injuries, surgeries, or medical conditions will be relevant.
  • Details about the location and nature of the pain, as well as any factors that worsen or alleviate it, are important.

Physical Examination

  • A physical examination involves assessing your posture, range of motion, and the flexibility of your spine.
  • Palpation (gentle pressing) of the spine and surrounding tissues helps identify tender areas and potential sources of pain.
  • Neurological tests may be performed to check for signs of nerve involvement, such as reflexes, muscle strength, and sensation.

Imaging Studies

  • X-rays: These can help visualize the bones and identify issues such as fractures, arthritis, or structural abnormalities.
  • MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging): Provides detailed images of soft tissues, such as discs, nerves, and muscles. Useful for detecting herniated discs, spinal stenosis, or tumors.
  • CT (Computed Tomography) Scan: Offers detailed cross-sectional images and is particularly useful for assessing bone structures.

Laboratory Tests

Blood tests may be ordered to check for signs of infection, inflammation, or systemic conditions that could contribute to back pain.

Specialized Tests

If specific conditions are suspected, additional tests like electromyography (EMG) or nerve conduction studies may be conducted to evaluate nerve function.

Diagnostic Injections

In some cases, diagnostic injections such as epidural injections or facet joint injections may be used to determine the source of pain by temporarily numbing certain nerves.

Consultation with Specialists

Depending on the findings, your healthcare provider may refer you to specialists such as orthopedic surgeons, neurologists, or pain management specialists for further evaluation and treatment.
